UH QB Brennan on Manning Award list

By Stephen Tsai
Advertiser Staff

Colt Brennan of the University of Hawai'i is one of 22 players on the watch list for the 2006 Manning Award as the nation's best college quarterback.

The Sugar Bowl Committee announced the list. The award is in honor of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning, and his sons, Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts, and Eli Manning of the New York Giants.

"It's cool," Brennan said. "I watch Peyton a lot. I like the way he takes control of the game. It's a different style of quarterback. I like his commercials, too. He has some of the best commercials."

Earlier, Brennan was named to the watch lists of the Maxwell Walter Camp awards.
